As Petey Greene, a hustler of a DJ who rose up in the ’60s, Don Cheadle has a shoot-your-mouth-off-first-and-apologize-later ferocity that evokes Richard Pryor. This marvelously acted biopic digs into the love/hate, street/suit tension between Petey and Dewey (Chiwetel Ejiofor), his program director.
